On tattoos and talking ourselves into being tough
Thank you so much, Joanna, for this new fabulous article that says it all about the beauty and benefit of mindfulness in a real life situation. While so many get sucked into the maelstrom; you did not, and you do not!
I use the mantra "the only way out is through" a lot when I'm in those kinds of high stress moments. Somethings can't be stopped or fixed right away or ignored but they won't last forever, so it a good reminder of the value of doing the next right thing and keeping moving.
(Also that tattoo is lovely!)
"This isn't forever" is a damn good mantra.
The tattoo is beautiful, but most of all it’s beautiful to you. And now you have even more meaning behind it than you had imagined when you booked the appointment.
